Orioles-Dodgers postponed, doubleheader on Saturday (updated)

Tonight’s game between the Orioles and Dodgers has been postponed due to rain.

The teams will play a split-admission doubleheader on Saturday, with the first game scheduled for 1:05 p.m. The second game will start at 7:05 p.m.

The Earl Weaver tribute will take place as scheduled prior to the 7:05 p.m. game.

Tickets for tonight’s game will be honored for Saturday’s 1:05 p.m. game. Gates for the 1:05 p.m. game will open at 11 a.m., and gates for the 7:05 p.m. game will be announced at the conclusion of the first game.

Fans may also exchange their tickets for tonight’s game for any remaining non-prime Orioles home game this season, subject to availability. Complimentary tickets are non-exchangeable. StubHub tickets are also non-exchangeable, but may be resold on StubHub up until 1:00 p.m. tomorrow. Student Night tickets may be exchanged for equal value of the ticket price. All tickets are valid for the makeup game.

Ticket exchanges can be performed at the box office or submitted in writing along with the original tickets and mailed via certified mail by June 19, 2013 to:

Baltimore Orioles
Attention: April 19 Rainout
333 West Camden Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

No announcement has been made related to the pitching match-ups. The assumption is that Jason Hammel will oppose Hyun-Jin Ryu in the 1:05 p.m. game, and Wei-Yin Chen will oppose Josh Beckett at 7:05 p.m.

The tarp remains on the field tonight and the rain hasn’t let up. Earlier, the Orioles instructed fans to take cover because of lightning.

Update: The pitching match-ups stay the same. It’s Hammel vs. Ryu in the first game and Chen vs. Beckett in the second game.

Also, only fans with tickets to the 7:05 p.m. game will be able to attend Weaver’s tribute.

Down on the farm, Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia had a two-run single tonight in his third at-bat with the Double-A Bowie Baysox. He was 0-for-2 with a strikeout before the single.
